It is been a while since I used Affinity Designer and I don't find what I am looking for in the forum.

Is there a scissor tool in affinity designer. I am trying to make a circle with an arrow and I don't want a full circle the pie and the donut tool doesn't give what I want.

Thank You

No, and no knife tool either. A big miss in my opinion.

Seriously, yes. But just in case do you know how I can do what I am looking for. In Sketch or Illustrator it is so easy, but in Affinity can't find the best way to do it.

To work around, make sure your circle is converted to curves. Then in the node tool place a node where you want each break.  Then select these break nodes and click on the break curve.  Then they will be individual curves.  That will allow arrows either or both ends of curves.

The Donut Tool would give you a curve which doubles back on itself, which obviously isn’t ideal, but either that tool or the Pie Tool will give you a useful starting point. Choose ‘Break Curve’ option with the Node Tool to isolate the unwanted portion so you can delete it.

Edit: Typing (much!) too slowly, I see.
